Sounds reasonable. The dumbsh*t who was apprehended on my bike is probably not the one who stole it. I doubt if he would have been smart enough to figure out that part.

One valuable thing I did learn about the KLR theft was this: In the initial police report the VIN was incorrect, one character off. I made sure on a followup call by the local police that the correct VIN was on record. I'm convinced that had I not insisted on that correction the bike would never have made it home since they would not have known they found MY bike.
